Pros: Inexpensive and it works.
Cons: If you have more than 4 SATA drives and want to change a pair of drives (swap them out), you can't buy extra sleds anywhere (I have found none) so you have to unmount a drive from one of the 4 supplied sleds and replace it with a different drive. This is a royal pain. There need to be spare sleds available for purchase, especially given all the writeups where people broke one. Newegg doesn't appear to sell them, or at least no search I have been able to run there will turn up a part number to order a few.
The internal PC wiring on this baby is on the wrong side. It is located against the mobo side of the drive. Most power cables aren't long enough to allow installing before slipping the unit into the box, and with all the SATA and power connectors on the bottom (wrong) side of the back, and hidden by the fan, it is almost impossible to hook up. The good news, if you make it, you probably won't have to do it but once, unless something burns out.
Folks, these are minor but terminally annoying user unfriendly features, that should never have made it to a production piece of hardware.
